Unfortunately, it is only a dream for most of us. The key obstacle （障碍） that carrying a lot is of water adds too much bulk and weight to vehicles. So US aircraft maker Boeing has organized an 11-strong team in the United States to find a solution. The result is an in-flight (or in-bus) shower that turns a little water into a lot of mist. The shower unit is a water-tight cylinder (圆筒) with fine nozzles (喷嘴) all around it. As travelers step inside, an optical sensor measures their height and shape and pumps water mixed with shampoo at high pressure through only those nozzles needed to cover the body. The fine mist is electrically ionized (离子化) as it leaves the nozzles. Since the human body is a natural conductor, the liquid drops are attracted to the earthed body. So no water is wasted. The nozzles then send out a mist of pure water, for bathing, followed by warm air for drying. It sounds rather pleasant, but Boeing hasn’t revealed a marketing plan yet. 56. Which of the following items is NOT in the shower unit? A. A cylinder. B. An optical sensor. C. A man-made conductor. D. Nozzles. 57. From the passage, we learn that _________. A. you need to take your own shampoo for an in-flight shower B. the ionized water drops can be attracted by the human body C. the water available is not enough for all the passengers D. as soon as the shower was invented, it had a wonderful market 58. This passage mainly talks about _________. A. less water, more water B. turning dreams into reality C. how high tech is making Boeing more powerful D. how high tech makes in-flight showers possible Ｂ Ｊａｓｏｎ What I like best is seeing Arsenal win and playing football. If I am feeling sad I will play a football game on my Play Station 2. The best day I have ever had was when I finished first in the
800-metre race at my secondary school. It was a school record, although I didn’t know that at the time. My family makes me happy, too. Ａｎｔｏｎｉｏ My little sister makes me sad because she always tells tales on me to my mum. If I am having a bad day, food cheers me up. I like chili con carne and sweet chili crisps. It makes me happy because I want to be big and have lots of energy. Ｕｓｍａｎ I haven’t done anything very exciting in my life but one of my best achievements is that I got a good report from my school this year, because last year I got a bad one. People on TV make me laugh, particularly Eddie Murphy. If I am having a bad day I watch Ｂａｓｉｌ Ｂｒｕｓｈ. I am good at making other people happy. I just talk and my friends start laughing — they think I am silly. Ａｓｈｌｅｉｇｈ If I’m having a bad day, knowing that someone is there for me can make me happy. I wouldn’t say I’m the best at making other people happy, but I know that just being a good friend to other people is important. The things I like doing are singing, dancing, hanging out with my friends and just being lively and funny. Ｋｉｎｚｅｙ The most exciting thing I have ever done in my life was when I went abseiling in Wales. But that was a one-off. The things I do all the time are playing football, watching movies and going places with my friends. I know it sounds bad, but what I find funny is when people hurt themselves. If I am having a bad day and I see someone having a worse day than me, that makes me feel better. 59. Food is very important for _________ when he has a bad day. A. Kinzey B. Ashleigh C. Antonio D.

The passage is mainly about _________.

a number of people ride their bicycles every day without the protection of a helmet. Due to cold winters across the country, riding has become increasingly dangerous as many roads have potholes and are torn-up (磨损的). Not everyone realizes that there are laws requiring the wearing of helmets in many places. Where I live, there has been a law in place since October 1, 1992 stating that cyclists of all ages are required to wear helmets. Unfortunately, accidents can happen to the best of riders. My dad has been a cyclist for many years, and he often rides around my county and to Rockland Lake State Park. One afternoon, as he was just entering the park, he lost control of his bicycle and flew off and landed on a nearby patch of grass, breaking his helmet into pieces and losing consciousness. When he was just awakening, a lovely couple found him and brought him back to our house, where he attempted to recap the events leading up to his fall. Later that day, a CAT scan revealed that he had a concussion (脑震荡). That evening, while my dad was showing me the pieces of his broken helmet, we both came to a shocking realization. If he had not worn his helmet, he probably would have cracked his skull and perhaps died. Today, when my dad and I go out cycling, the wearing of our helmets is not even a question. Regardless of age, everyone should wear a helmet whenever they get on a bicycle. 64. According to the passage, which of the following statements is TURE? A. Young men needn’t wear helmets. B. The writer’s father didn’t wear a helmet until the writer bought him one. C. People don’t have to wear helmets on smooth surface roads. D. Accidents do not happen to the best cyclists. 65. In the writer’s opinion, why should people wear bicycle helmets? A. Because a law requires them to do so. B. Because many people like wearing bicycle helmets. C. Because people have realized the importance of wearing helmets. D. Because the conditions of roads are very poor and it is dangerous to ride on them. 66. The underlined part “we both came to a shocking realization” in Paragraph 4 means “_______”. A. we understood how lucky the dad was to have worn a helmet B. we were shocked to see the broken helmet C. we realized that young people needn’t wear helmets D. only old people should wear helmets 67. From the accident that happened to the writer’s dad, we can infer that ___________. A. the cyclists should follow the law B. his dad was not worried about this accident C. it is necessary for cyclists to wear helmets D. everyone should care about life Ｄ Three types of pangolins (穿山甲) exist in Africa — the giant pangolin, the tree pangolin and the most widespread, the ground pangolin. Pangolins have small heads and long, broad tails. They are toothless and have no external ears, although their hearing is good. Their sense of smell is well-developed, but their sight is poor. The weight of the scales (鳞片) and skin make up about 20% of their weight.
The common pangolin prefers sandy soils and is found in woodlands and savannas (热带草 原), within reach of water. All pangolins can roll themselves into a ball to defend themselves. The cutting action of their scales protects them too. Pangolins also have scent glands (臭腺) that release strong, foul smelling secretions. Pangolins are normally alone. Females are usually alone with their young. The young are 6 inches long and weigh 12 ounces at birth. Their pale, soft scales begin to harden by the second day. The baby is folded in the mother’s lap or rolled-up body. It is nursed for 3 to 4 months and begins to eat termites (白蚁) at 1 month. At this time the infant begins to accompany the mother, perhaps riding on the base of her tail. If the mother senses danger the baby slips under her and is protected when she rolls up her body. Pangolins use their sense of smell to locate termite and ant nests. They dig up the insects with their claws and use their extremely long tongues to eat them. 68. Where do common pangolins like to live？ A. On a tree. B. In a pond. C. On a hill. D. In woodlands. 69. When pangolins are ______, they release strong, foul smelling secretions. A. happy B. sad C. frightened D. angry 70. Which of the following words best describes the function of the pangolin’s scales? A. Heavy. B. Beautiful. C. Protective. D. Hard. 71. What does the last paragraph mainly talk about? A. The pangolin’s habitat. B. The pangolin’s diet. C. The pangolin’s behavior. D. The pangolin’s appearance. Ｅ Where is the richest town in America? ＷＯＲＴＨ magazine unveiled (揭开) its 6th annual list out of the 205 richest towns and the most valuable homes, and the winner is Jupiter Island, Florida, 30 miles north of West Palm Beach on the Atlantic coast. Jupiter Island, Florida, an Atlantic coast barrier island, is about 10 miles long, a quarter to a half mile wide. Its medium home price is $3.9 million and the upper homes, down near the National Wildlife Refuge, run in the 4 to 5 million range. The people who live on Jupiter Island come for privacy. Few, if any, homes are visible from the road. There’ nothing commercial (商业 s 的) here, and people come for quiet. In some towns, you can’t make noise between certain hours and between October and April. One home with the hand painted ceilings, a horizonless pool, and the master suite (套房) of 10,000 square feet, has a 14-million-dollar price tag (标签). But this home is no where near the top end. There are homes in Jupiter in the 30- and 40-million-dollar list.

Almost all of these languages belong to a certain language family. According to various studies, there are about 20 to 30 language families. Each language is related to one language family or another. Therefore, the grammar, vocabulary and pronunciations of these languages within a family are similar. The language we are using now is English. As everyone knows, English has become a world language because of its establishment as a mother tongue outside England. It is spoken by 300 million people in the world. Besides, there are 200 million people that speak it as their second language. However, English is a member of the IndoEuropean language family. This large family includes most of the languages that are spoken throughout Europe.

Once formed, they are difficult to get rid of. They are either moving us forward or holding us back, so we should take care in the formation of habits. As we know, good habits have many advantages. For example, going to bed early and getting up early makes us healthy; diligence helps to succeed; honesty helps win the respect and trust of others. If we form bad habits, such as rudeness, laziness, lying and stealing, they might ruin us. As students, we should develop such habits as taking five minutes to review our lessons every day, putting our notes in order and so on. 重点解析 ２１． Ｂ。句意为：在 20 世纪 60 年代，亚特兰大目睹了黑人和白人之间一连串激烈的冲 突。当 see 的主语是物时，语言显得生动，意为“目睹，见证” 。２５． Ｄ。短语辨析题。 come about 发生；come out 开花，出来；come up to 达到；come up with 提出。本句意思是 “这个问题相当难，没有人能提出解决办法来” 。２９． Ｃ。这是个复合句，主句主语 The early years 后面是由 when 和 which 引导的两个并列的定语从句，主句的谓语是 won’t be forgotten。３９． Ｄ。figure out 弄明白；carry out 执行，实施；take out 取出；deal with 处 理，对付。４２． Ｃ。当对一本书不感兴趣，再读它的时候，对于本身有着诵读困难的作 者来说，阅读就变得更难了，因此选 challenge 意为“挑战” 。 ４８． Ｃ。只通过看这个人，你无法辨别他是否有诵读困难。tell 辨别，区分。５６． Ｃ。 细节判断题。根据第五段和第六段的内容可知这种淋浴器的部件包括：a water-tight cylinder with fine nozzles 和 an optical sensor；根据第七段的“Since the human body is a natural conductor ...”可知人体本身就是导体，故离子化的水珠就自动地被吸到了人体上，而不靠人 造的导体，故 C 项不包括在内。６３． Ａ。文章中每个人都在说什么让他们高兴，不高兴 时怎么做才会高兴，所以选 A。６７． Ｃ。推理判断题。根据最后一段中的“If he had not worn his helmet, he probably would have cracked his skull and perhaps died.” 可知对于车手来说 戴头盔是必要的。故选 C。７２． Ｄ。细节判断题。根据第二段中的“The people who live on Jupiter Island come for privacy.”和“There’s nothing commercial here, and people come for quiet.”可知答案是 D。
